I am inviting abstracts for a NeMLA 2022 panel I am putting together titled "Literary Form, Spirituality, and Empire in the Global 20th Century." 

This panel explores the interrelations between literary form and genre, spirituality, and political thinking in the global 20th century. Panelists are encouraged to consider contributing on topics related to literature's relation to secularism/post-secularism, mysticism and the occult, global spiritualities, religious nationalisms, transnationalisms, and cosmopolitanisms in the 20th century. Interdisciplinary approaches that address literary-aesthetic or formal concerns are also welcome.

Please note that NeMLA requires abstracts to be uploaded directly on to the NeMLA website. You will have to login, search for this panel, and use the "submit abstract" option.

Deadline for uploading abstracts to the NeMLA site: September 30, 2021. 

Please feel free to get in touch with me with any further questions via my email:
